The Sacramento Public Library has announced that they will reopen several locations to the public on November 5, with limited capacity, including the Rio Linda branch. All 26 locations will continue to offer curbside pickup and return services.

Patrons may visit the library for browsing and computer use for up to one hour. The library will be open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

“While we have been able to serve the community with curbside service and virtual programming, we know that it has been a struggle for many without access to our services. We are so excited to open our doors and welcome you back. Your next visit may look a little different, but know that restoring access and keeping you safe is our top priority.”


The library has implemented a number of safety measures to protect public health. This includes requiring all staff and patrons two years or older to wear a face covering, reducing occupancy and seating to allow for proper social distancing, providing hand sanitizing stations and frequent cleaning of high-touch areas. Additional locations opening in November will be announced later this month.
